Celebrate with a Patio Party

Well, with the help of some extra strong Beecham’s tablets, I managed to limp through the working week – but I have to admit that I’m relieved it’s Friday and my day off. I’ll be taking it easy today, although I do have not one, not two but THREE big Stampin’ Up!® orders arriving at some point, one of which will help me create something for Convention. Something which was supposed to be a secret... until my friend and downline Alison popped round last night and accidentally saw the beginnings of them. Doh! She has been sworn to secrecy.

Today’s card is somewhat celebratory, to celebrate my day off – and it was created by my talented friend, Kelly. Not to imply that she’s my only friend with talent! (But she is in a class of her own.)

Kelly made this with my Patio Party products to help me out in the busy run-up to my catalogue launch. It’s a win-win situation; she gets to play with brand new products, and I get fab samples to display!
